AGL SDKs

To build your AGL services or AGL applications using XDS, you must install a Software Development Kit (SDK) that matches your target/board.

An SDK is a package that includes all the tools you need to cross-build and cross-debug your service or application. You install an SDK by running the SDK Installer.

You can build an AGL SDK Installer for your board or you can download a pre-built installer.

This section describes how you can download a pre-built SDK Installer using either the command line or the XDS Dashboard. For information on how to build an SDK Installer, see the “Download or Build Your SDK Installer” section.

NOTES:

  • In order to use the command line or the XDS Dashboard to download an SDK Installer, you must have the XDS UI set up in your toolchain (i.e. ‘xds-cli’). If you did not install ‘xds-cli’, see the “Client Part” section for instruction on how to install XDS UI.

  • See the “xds-server” chapter for more information on SDK management.

Command Line Operations

This section describes how to download and install an SDK, abort an installation, install an SDK from a local directory, and view all installed SDKs.

Download and Install an SDK Using the Command Line

Use the following commands to choose and install a pre-built SDK Installer:

# List all available SDKs
xds-cli sdks ls -a

Abort an Installation that is in Progress

If for some reason you need to abort an ongoing installation, you can use the sdks abort command:

xds-cli sdks abort -id d65fe750

Install an SDK Using a Local SDK Package or File

If you have an SDK Installer that is already local to your system, you can use the command line to install it from your local directory:

xds-cli sdks install --file $HOME/xds-workspace/sdks/poky-agl-glibc-x86_64-agl-demo-platform-crosssdk-corei7-64-toolchain-4.99.5.sh

NOTE: Installation based on a local SDK Installer is only supported when the SDK Installer is in the $HOME/xds-workspace/sdks directory.

List Installed SDKs

To list the installed SDKs, use the following command:

xds-cli sdks ls

List of installed SDKs:
ID       NAME                                            STATUS          VERSION ARCH
